Farmers, bakers, and candlestick makers will be filling the 1005 Main St hallway Wednesday evenings from 4pm until 7pm. In addition to the variety of participating vendors, many businesses within Hope Artiste Village have committed to being open during the market so that the community can get all of their shopping done in one place.
“With so many new shops within the Village, we look forward to welcoming the local community.This late weekday market provides the perfect opportunity to come browse and shop,” said Debbie Wood of We Be Jammin.
The original Pawtucket Farmers Market closed during the height of the pandemic due to restrictions on in-person shopping and many vendors having prior commitments on Saturdays. The move to Wednesday nights provides a midweek shopping option, as well as other opportunities.
One such opportunity is the Lucky Clover Farm flower CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture. Bouquets can be picked up at the in-person market, or can be delivered by Seymour Foods, a woman-owned business located within Hope Artiste Village. By purchasing an 18-week CSA, a participant has fresh flowers all winter for $20 per week. The proceeds from Lucky Clover Farm’s flower CSA are invested back into the farm to purchase seeds and equipment.
“The flower share is a well curated collection of bouquets to ensure changing up color pallets and textures weekly. We harvest and arrange only the best blooms for our beloved CSA members,” said Laura Monti-Joyal, owner of Lucky Clover Farm.
The Pawtucket Indoor Farmers Market is open from 4pm until 7pm every Wednesday from Sept. 21 through Apr. 26. To learn more about the market, visit www.pawtucketfarmersmarket.com or contact Lisa Kellogg at (814) 574-3571.
